Best Local Restaurants Tourists Don't Know About...Yet

Restaurants that the Locals Love

Welcome to our favorite restaurants that serve great food but would easily be missed if you are not from the Long Beach Washington Peninsula.  These are places that include a dive bar with delicious organic shrimp and crab salads on the menu (The Fishtrap in Chinook), or some crazy good Norweigan seafood pizza that isn't advertised anywhere (Long Beach Tavern) or a high end 5 table fine-dining Italian restaurant like MyCovios with just two employees. 

Beach Fire Barbucue has amazing smoked ribs and chicken

Beach Fire Barbecue

612 Pacific Ave S Long Beach, WA

360 777-3999

This tiny restaurant is in downtown Long Beach and is across the street from Street Time Tacos. 


Beach Fire Barbecue might have the best ribs in Washington State.  The owner sets his brand new, high-tech smoker to 210 degrees for 3 to 4 hours, puts in the high-quality ribs or chicken, and the result nothing short of perfection.  All of his sauces are homemade and at last count, there were more than 10. My favorite is the sweet chili sauce. The best deal is the 1/2 rack of ribs with 2 sides (select from macaroni, baked beans, or coleslaw) and a cornbread muffin.  They will cater for up to up to 200 people so call ahead.  

MyCovio's Chef Paul


1311 Bay Ave, Ocean Park WA

360 642-3475


MyCovios is on the corner of Bay Avenue and North Place, visible from the single stoplight in Ocean Park, Washington.  MyCovios provides a unique dining experience you won't soon forget. There are only 5 tables in this tiny restaurant with just 2 employees and one is the owner! Paul, is your Dutch master chef from Amsterdam. At 6 foot 4 inches tall he is ready to concoct a plethora of regional Italian dishes. MyCovios is within easy walking distance of  1303 Beach Retreat  and Weather Beach and a short drive from all of our Ocean Park, WA vacation rentals. Be sure to tell Paul Bloomer Estates sent you!

Long Beach Tavern serves GREAT Pizza.  Its a hidden gem, few people know about it. One customer wrote : "I love I mean love the pizza here. I lived in Long Beach for a while.

The Old Fishtrap

This customer put it perfectly: "Complete dive, that being said though they’re the NICEST BUNCH OF PEOPLE WORKING THERE AND THE FOOD IS AMAZING!!! I need to go back and try some other things. I got the prawns. Butterflied, Panko breaded, perfectly fried. They make their own sauces. I got the tartar and cocktail and found myself eating both equally. Don’t let the looks of the place fool you!!! Go! Now!!"
